Just because Toei goes and does something does not
mean that it is the best decision. The way they have handled Kai 2.0
is proof of that. NO ONE here likes the tint, so FUNimation should release something that is better. Another example is the music: just because Toei thinks a then-60 year old "composer's" farts made good background music for Z
doesn't mean that it is a good decision. If Toei intends to release something in a shitty way, they could just be idiots and it's up to FUNimation to save us from it (referring to Kai 2.0
since everyone here hates the tint).
Heck, 4Kids made the first Yu-Gi-Oh!
movie. Their version was the original, and when Japan went and dubbed it, they changed a few things. In my opinion, Japan's version is the better one, even if it is not the original or 100% true to 4Kids' intentions. I think the only bad decisions FUNimation has made is when they did the nasty crop to Z
for their orange brick/BD releases, and of course the poor job they did on the former with the major loss of detail.
TL;DR If Toei half-asses something or makes a bad decision, forget "intent" or "it's the original." They don't know what they're doing. And I think we all agree with the man I quoted that if FUNimation does change the tint, it will be "fixing" it (provided they get rid of it).
